Yea there were some good players and it ended up taking 4 hrs to complete! lol that was a big reason i decided to play that because i didnt want to have to play for 7-8hrs just to make the FT, also i figured since it was a 1 rebuy was allowed they would play a little bit looser and they did. when i registered 50 ppl had and the top 10 paid out . thats pretty good odds
for me )
I also had played/watched with a few of the players that were playing the 109 second chance so i thought i had a good chance. i would of had a GREAT chance of winning if my hand would have held, but like one of my poker role models would say, "thats poker baby!"
